The Oscars ceremony might be happening in sunny Los Angeles, but inside the Dolby Theatre — things are not so dry!
Less than a hour before the glamorous ceremonies began, a pipe burst in the women's bathroom at the Dolby Theatre causing the surrounding area to be totally flooded!!
Guests had to high-step their way around the puddles while a crew of workers cleaned up the mess.
Which they did in record time! Good show!
We think the Academy should DEFINITELY thank that clean-up crew!
They totally saved the night!!

Better start getting used to the sound of Dolby Theatre now, folks! Cause like we reported earlier, that's the new name of Oscar's home!!
But it's also going to be home to other amazing experiences too!
Come June 18, the shiny Dolby Theatre will enjoy its grand opening through the film premiere of Pixar's latest masterpiece — Brave!
As a special presentation for Film Independent's 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival, Dolby will present a test mix of the film with Lucasfilm's Skywalker Sound!
The company has their fingers crossed as they plan on installing the "lifelike, immersive" Atmos sound system in 15 theaters worldwide.
Designed to transmit up to 128 simultaneous audio channels, this is GREAT news for cinema enthusiasts!! And using Brave for the test run?? Incredible idea!!
Brave will open everywhere June 22!! Can't wait to see that feisty redhead!!

Oh, thank goodness!!
Though we don't fear change, there's a certain air of class about the
Kodak Dolby Theatre that stadiums can't match!
And since the Academy Awards ceremony is the most elegant of the season, we're SO happy to share the good news!!
Though the name has changed to Dolby, that golden theatre at Hollywood & Highland will remain Oscar's home for at least 21 more years. An arbitrary number… but yay!!
Academy president Tom Sherak is elated, saying:
